Kanye West --- Still Cool With Wheelchaired Fan ... Yeezus Rides With Us

Exclusive Details




Kanye West called out a disabled fan in his audience again -- but this time he actually scored points with the wheelchair bound crowd surfer ... who tells TMZ there's no grudge over that super awkward moment in Australia. 

Rick Guardino was at Kanye's benefit show in Chicago last weekend when friends hoisted him up above the crowd. In the video ... it looks like Yeezy spots Rick and actually salutes him in the middle of his rap.

It was way different from the PR debacle earlier this month ... where Kanye delayed his show until a fan in a wheelchair stood up

So, was Kanye just trying to do a wheelchair make good in Chi town? Rick admits this was his first time at a Yeezus show, but he's convinced the rapper does NOT have anything against disabled people.

Paparazzi and street signs ... are another story.
